Animal outings fun card for Stampin' for all Facebook group

How much fun is this stamp set !!!! brilliant I love it. I created this fun card especially for the lovely Ian Potter, a fellow UK demo who helps me run the facebook craft form Stampin' for all. Ian set a card case challenge or us to follow and this is what I came up with.

I love fun cards life is way to short to take things serious a little bit of silly now and then goes a long way in my book. The Animal outings is a great set with cuts fun animal image and some really great sentiments. There is a whole suite focused around this with fun Designer series paper available too.

I chose to just use the stamps on this card and stamped my own background using Shaded Spruce ink. The images are stamped in Granite grey a great outline colour. Te images were given a pop of colour using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils. A great artist I am not but combined with the Stampin' blender pens the pencils give a nice smooth finish.

Finally to make my centrepiece stand out a border was stamped using the swirly frames stamp set again using Shaded Spruce. What fun card to send to anyone ad for any occasion ... even just to say hello.

I hope you enjoyed this card all the products used are listed below. Feel free to come on over and find our Stampin' For All Facebook group and perhaps meet Ian and join in our challenges.

Hand stamped box and gift tags

As many of you will have noticed Stampin' Up! had a colour revamp with the new catalogue. One of the new colours being Highland Heather, the most beautiful shade of lilac which I wanted to share with you today.

I created a simple box with a hand stamped lid using the stunning new colour and the Detailed with love stamp set. I used most of this stamp set to create the hand stamped box lid, belly band, the sentiment and the tags inside. 

Now On my video I made the mistake of saying the stamp comes as a bundle with the Stitched labels framelits... it doesn't it comes as a bundle with the trio punch and I have left images and links below ..oops my mistake. The framelits accompany the stitched all around stamp set so I mixed and matched these sets.

I love how this project turned out and love the contrast f the highland heather against the Whisper white for a crisp fresh look.

I do have a step by step tutorial on this project for you to follow and I shall also leave measurements below. I do hope you enjoy this project and will try it for yourself. So why not grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the tutorial ?...

One sheet wonder envelope card..

As a Shabby chic girl at heart nothing makes me happier than when Stampin' Up! do something I can use for this style. The tea room suite is just pure shabby chic heaven for me. I adore everything from the colour f the DSP to the copper vinyl stickers, every element of this entire suite is pure bliss.

I saw these one sheet style cards in an envelope whilst surfing Youtube ...its not new there are countless videos but I wanted to give it my own take. You only need one sheet of 12 x 12 DSP to make it. Indeed you could change up the sizing you just need to start with a square.

I combined the Tea room DSP with the co-ordinating stamp set and tnbinlits choosing to keep colours simple using coastal cabana ink to match my DSP sheet.

I decorated the inside using the stamp set and the vinyl stickers which are so elegant and such great quality they are an absolute dream to use.

In all an easy project which gives beautiful results. I do hope you will give this project a try. I have a fun step by step tutorial for you to follow on my Youtube. All products used are listed below so you can see exactly what I used. So why not grab a brew get comfy and enjoy the video...
